When We Look At Ted Cruz, We See the Alamo

t was not until the last 24 hours, after 13 days of siege, that a real battle ensued. In the battle, the Alamo defenders fought valiantly and nearly all were killed including Jim Travis, Jim Bowie, and Davey Crockett. The defense of the Alamo allowed General Sam Houston to build a large enough army to route Santa Anna and his men. “Remember The Alamo” was a constant battle cry at the Battle of San Jacinto, six weeks later. In the battle that lasted only 18 minutes, roughly 630 Mexican troops were killed and 730 captured while only 9 Texans died....

Attitude Adjusting On Sliding Scale Of Islam

HERE ARE THOSE WHO THINK the tide has turned on the question of militant Islam, moderate Muslims, and the algebra of just getting along. Some believe as a result of Jack Straw's recent admission of concern over Muslim women's use of veils to cover their faces in British society and PM Tony Blair's call for full discussion on the Muslim conflict with modernity has signalled a sea change in mood for free speech traditions long stymied by the political correctness crowd. Calling out for more common sense, these free speech advocates suggest that the rules of the game seem to...


Anders Breivik The Norwegian

S QUIET NORWAY BEGINS TO bury its dead after a homegrown atrocity, the Leftist corporate media slips en masse into familiar gears spitted with gobs of war grease and irrational grievance once again... The attacks on 22 July 2011 by Norwegian Anders Breivik, 32, were a shock to the nation. The mad man first bombed government buildings in Oslo, which resulted in eight deaths. He then carried out a mass shooting at a camp of the Workers' Youth League (AUF) of the Labour Party on the island of Utøya where he killed 69 people, mostly teenagers. Breivik was diagnosed with...


Breaking Free Of The Stupid Undergrounds

HIS IS, NEEDLESS TO SAY, NOT how one should approach a discussion over what is sure to be a difficult sell to those who already feel they know everything they need to know on a difficult topic, and instead presume you are just an idiot, a racist, and probably both. In this photo, let's suppose we have a husband and wife, or perhaps two old friends, each professionals, a college professor and a bank executive, and let's agree it's not germane which job is whose. Woman or man, based only on what you see in the photo and what you...


More The Same Of Those Subterranean Homesick Blues

Posted by: GeorgiaBoy61 COULD NOT AGREE MORE with the substance of your column. Over and over again, I have asked myself since the 9-11 attacks, how it could be that virtually everyone in the [civilized] west, including many Americans, feels compelled to use euphemistic language when speaking of Islamic violence. Why is everyone walking on eggshells? The few who dare to voice their honestly-felt opinions about Islam are derided as racists, xenophobes, Islamophobes, etc. The whole phenomenon is still somewhat mystifying to me, but reading Mark Steyn's "America Alone" and other works has helped bring this strange behavior into focus...
